Hunter, who patrolled center field for a decade with both the Angels and Minnesota Twins, agreed to move to right field midway through this season to make room for Peter Bourjos, the Angels' center fielder of the future. Hunter, who is under contract with the Angels through 2012, has annual bonuses of $100,000 should he win the Gold Glove, per Cot's Baseball Contracts.
